A Time to Heal is a value-added book, with authentic Amish recipes, a glossary, discussion questions, an interview with the author, and snippets from A Time to Love (Quilts of Lancaster County book 1) and A Time for Peace (Quilts of Lancaster County book 3). Amish fiction lovers will love this story!
It was fun to revisit Jenny, Matthew, Phoebe, Hannah, and the kinner in Paradise. Chris, an Englisch acquaintance of Jenny's, comes looking for peace while dealing with physical and emotional injuries of war. He finds the peace he's longing for, and much more, as he is attracted to the outspoken and determined Hannah. But he and the Bontrager family face questions, unrest, and tragedies when his past follows him and brings harm to those he has grown to love.
I would recommend that you curl up under a cozy quilt and enjoy this story of love, hope and forgiveness from a great author. I'm looking forward to coming back for a visit with old friends when A Time for Peace comes out in the fall.
Chris has returned home from the war, with a lot of bitterness and PTSD. He is looking for someone he met in the hospital, hoping that he will find peace also. Predictably he finds love. The saving part is that Hannah is no sweet demure young thing, but an old maid with a sharp tongue who doesn't like this stranger hanging around. Hannah is the character that makes the book, otherwise all the characters would just be sweet as honey.
I probably won't go back and read the first one, but if you like romance, with a lack of smut, then this author would appeal.
That aside, the story itself was a good read, entertaining, and the characters interesting. I would be interested in reading another in the series, so long as the characters can refrain from "schooling their expressions" every other page!
When "Englisch" Chris visits now-Plain Jenny and falls for her lovely sister-in-law Hannah, not all the explosions come from colliding worlds.
I picked up this book free during an Amazon giveaway. Very readable story with plenty of elements besides romance. The title was relevant but not very specific.
When Chris ventures to Lancaster County, hoping to find healing from his experiences in the war, little does he know how deeply he'll be affected by Hannah, the Amish sister-in-law of a woman he met at the VA hospital during rehab. He also has no idea how important her family and friends will become to him, how much he'll be involved in the community and family and how much satisfaction he'll gain from helping her brother, Matthew, with the harvest. Despite all this, there are those who deeply resent the presence of the English man in their quiet existence and this resentment grows into threats against himself, Hannah and her family.
I always come away from Cameron's books feeling refreshed, more believing in mankind and more interested in slowing down a bit and looking at the simple good in life. Her portrayal of the basic beliefs and consequent actions of the Amish community are well researched, well presented, not preachy, yet giving one pause, points to ponder and, often, some peaceful insight into one's own life.
